Evolution Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about evolution
  1. #1
    “I think it inevitably follows, that as new species in the course of time are formed through natural selection, others will become rarer and rarer, and finally extinct. The forms which stand in closest competition with those undergoing modification and improvement will naturally suffer most.”
  2. #2
    “I believe that animals have descended from at most only four or five progenitors, and plants from an equal or lesser number.”
  3. #3
    “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
  4. #4
    “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. But I can find no such case.”
  5. #5
    “I see no good reasons why the views given in this volume should shock the religious views of anyone.”
  6. #6
    Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster.
